    To the FF Haters: Try adding a bookmarks sidebar to chrome. You can't except with a very flaky extension. I switched back to Firefox after using Palemoon for over 2 years. The notion that PM is faster is a farce, and for me Firefox is more stable than any of the other browsers. Each update, it gets even better!

    Nobody likes the changes that firefox has made the last few years. Thats why they are done. They will continue to lose market share and be pretty much irrelevant in the future like Netscape, Winamp and AIM. Interface is everything. If if looks like crap and is next to impossible to navigate, you have a major problem. And stop it with the speed. There is no difference between any of the major browsers. Unless your counting like a tenth of a second difference. Pale Moon and Seamonkey are the browsers that still hold us powers users on. Chrome for the simpler crowd. This new firefox has joined the crappy new Opera browser and the last 4 versions of IE.

    Jeez, really, it's just the tabs that are bothering everyone? Really? The same whiners who cried when Microsoft got rid of the precious Start button and replaced it with...an image. It's because tabs UI look better on tablets and having one uniform look across all platforms save developers hours of time instead of maintaining two or more UIs. These same people will cry when Google changes the UI on Android 5. And the rest of us will scream and shout "You can change it!" but it will fall on deaf ears. Again. Pitiful.

    As for this version, rendering is hella faster than all the other versions. Those annoyances from 29-31 are gone for me. My addons work flawlessly. I wish the Ui sucked more so I could join the Firefox Sucks! bandwagon but, alas...it works for me.

    If I could I'd give you a 5 star rating! Do you remember when you could tell which browser was on the screen just by its look? Now they all look the same. Chrome, IE, Firefox, even Avant browser look almost identical. The only positive thing I can say of Avant now is that I can still move the tabs where I want them to be, right under the other bars and right on top of the viewing window. Firefox's tabs used to be movable also but no more. So, a 1 star for Firefox untill that changes and gets a new look instead of a morph of chrome and IE wich I consider a pain to use anyway.
